The University’s water system is a privately owned public water supply operated by the Utilities Department and provides water to the University community and the nearby C.S.C. properties. There are currently seven wells serving the water system, all located on the campus proper. The amendments to the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act require each public water supply to produce a water quality report titled the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
Water system operators within the Utilities Department must be certified to ensure the safe operation of the water system.
Title XIV of The Public Health Service Act: Safety of Public Water Systems (Safe Drinking Water Act) is the federal law that protects public drinking water supplies.
